New drivers for OS 9?
« on: September 30, 2022, 08:16:51 PM »
Hello,

I have been playing with this wonderful idea of being able to write low level driver support for USB 2 under OS 9 and also WPA encryption ? Given the G4 MDD FW800 supports airport extreme, is there a way using codewarrior to write new code for wireless N or even G to be supported + USB 2.0 support ? It would be cool if we can support USB 2 and better wireless encryption. What do you all think ? I would like to see an OS 9.2.3 or OS 9.2.4 support these.

Yes, there is a way. Before you start write code learn how to USB-chips works then learn how to extensions works in Mac OS 9.
When you hava done that plan what driver have to do in byte(/bit) level and I think there is programmers to help you after that.
I bought my first new Mac when OS X 10.1 released. And I bought that Mac because it had Mac OS 9 too. And I bought my first 68k Mac when Apple stopped PPC Macs.
